Y4L training session
Youth 4 Literacy (Y4L)
Our first group of 32 youth were trained during the week of 14th to 18th of February. We are hoping to have these youth placed in schools by the 21st of February. The first batch of youth in our staggered start approach will be placed in grade 3 classrooms in the following schools: Gateway Primary; Masonwabe Primary; Welwitschia Primary; Kannemeyer Primary; Levana; Litha Primary; Lwazi Primary; Sonwabo Primary; Walmer Estate Primary and Ottery Road Primary.
Moreover, we will continue to send home termly Shine @home packs to Youth 4 Literacy and Chapter Schools. We have sent out 14 498, Grade 1, 2 and 3 packs for Term 1, based on last year's numbers. By the end of 2022 we will send out plus minus 57 992 Shine @home distribution packs.
Story Time with Shine, Shine’s datafree Mobi-Site had 54 000 people logged on,by the end of 2021. However, Google Analytics indicates that 27 000 were returning users, or users that stayed to browse the site. Our aim this year is to increase our users to 100 000, through concentrated marketing as well as our weekly broadcast messages. We’re in a fortunate position this year to have an Afrikaans and Xhosa trainer as a part of our team, this means we will be able to offer content in classrooms and on our mobi-site in these respective languages as well.
